This hotel deserves a very rare five stars from me. Upon arrival you are greeted by the warm and friendly staff. The outside of the hotel is charming but be prepared for functional and charming in the room. We are travelling as a family so we booked a suite. The suite had two bedrooms with doors, a hallway with a... More

Dragging my skis down the hill I spotted this hotel. I desperately needed a place that to warm my bones and heart, and it was PERFECT. The owner was so... More

We just stayed for one night and we enjoyed very much! Great room, great view and great breakfast. Team is nice and friendly. I strongly recommend this place to everyone. Faultless place. Bed very comfy, spacious room enough and view on the mountains

Lovely guest house with immaculate rooms. Very comfy and nice people. I think it's been refurbished recently as the decor and furniture are all like brand new. Good view of Mont Blanc from room The breakfast is a little expensive but you can eat outside at many places for much less. We went para gliding and what a great experience... More

We stayed in L'Oustalet for 4 night on a skiing trip. The hotel is a nice cosy wooden hotel, with a small functional Spa (hot tub + Dry/Wet steam room). staff is very pleasant an helpful and the rooms are quite comfortable and roomy (although nothing luxurious, obviously). I would recommend visiting the hotel, if you don't mind the following:... More

I stayed here for 5 nights (3 nights in 1 room, 2 in another) on a B&B basis, !39€/night booked direct. The hotel is located in a reasonably quiet area, approx.10 minutes downhill walk from the main SNCF railway stn. and 2 minutes' walk from the Aiguille du Midi cc station, where I was able to buy my lift pass.....

We stayed here for a four night ski break and were pleasantly surprised by the spacious rooms. We had room 2 with an impressive view right up to the Aiguille du Midi and the Glacier des Bossons. From the hotel it was about a 7 minute walk in one direction to the bus station, with free buses to all the... More

The hotel is good, rooms are big, confortable beds, nice shower, and a prety good view of Mont Blanc from de balcony. Close to the bus stop, ski station - Brevent, as a lot of commerce and restaurants around.

I had the pleasure of staying here in September 2013. When I arrived my room was not read. The lady at the front desk was so nice. She offered me a place to change and asked if I wanted to hangout at the pool. I choose to head into town. I was able to check-in and leave my luggage behind... More

We stayed here at the end of August and everything was wonderful. Everyone was very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and the views of Mont Blanc were extraordinary! Walking distance to train station, Aiguille du Midi and the town center. We would definitely stay here again.
